About the Artist
This is a work by artist Nancy Webb.
Nancy Webb (1926-2012) was an artistic powerhouse. She began her art career as a painter and print maker in the 1940s, creating book jacket covers for works including Isaac Bashevis Singer and some of her own books for children. By the late 1960s, Webb was also a sculptor, creating large modernist works as well as smaller, more sensual and ephemeral works of the natural world, brimming with symbolic and earthy meanings.
